Plant properties

Stem of rice branches off in root and grows up and becomes 50-90 centimeters in height. There is one spikelet in point of each twig which branched off into majority. This panicle stands with so-called ear of rice at time of flower, but has dripping for self-respect as rice ripens. As for the rice, paddy-rice cultivated with aquatic plant in rice field is essentially important, but, deep floating rice to grow underwater, there is rice grown in a dry field which we can grow again even if there is little water. We work on rice-transplanting to Honda in the Honshu central part in the rainy season, and paddy-rice harvests in around October, but the first cropping disseminates in Okinawa in around February and disseminates by crop, semiannual crop in July in July and harvests in November.
